Early Double-Iron MOlding Plane by Nelson, London.
This plane was made by William Nelson who worked in London ca. 1805-1826 according to Goodman's book. This plane is a strange double-iron molder that cuts a fairly simple small flat ovolo but with a large flat at the top of the profile. It uses two blades to accomplish this- one for the ovolo and the other for the large flat/fillet on top. It's been used by remains in very good condition. It has some old minor work damage and it's likely one wedge is a replacement. It's a strange one, and a fairly early plane from this London maker.

Ugly Lie-Nielsen no. 6 Fore/Jointer Plane.
This no. 6 sat in a wet basement wrapped in newspaper for a while. The result was significant rust on the sides and sole. You can see a photo of it in its "before" state at the bottom of the picture page. I put a little work into it and removed the rust. The sides and sole have some level of pitting, but it's a completely cosmetic problem. The pitting is very light and can hardly be felt with the fingertips. I've taken close photos of the worst of it to try to fully illustrate the issues. The rest of the plane is in great shape. The blade has no pitting at all. The adjusters work perfectly. The knob has a few tiny dings as you can see, but the tote is perfect. It'll work just as well as any other Lie-Nielsen. It just won't look as nice. $375 list new.
